The Midwest-Northwest region of the United States plays a vital role in our mission. The local churches that make up this region are filled with people who are united in gospel ministry and mission. Below you will find prayer requests for the pastors and churches who make up this region. Thanks for praying!
Covenant Life Fellowship (Roseburg, OR)
- We’re making some staff changes (adjusting current staff & hiring new staff).
- Our administrator possibly becoming Senior Pastor in Burien, Washington.
Emmaus Road Church (Sioux Fall, SD)
- We just "birthed"/launched a new missional community. Pray for health and joy in transition for the two missional communities that sent people out to form the new one. Pray for a sweet spiritual community and missional traction for the new missional community.
- Spiritual blessing and fullness of the Holy Spirit on those who will be baptized on Easter Sunday.
- Assimilation of 8-10 new couples in our new members class.
- Missional traction for all 5 of our missional communities as we plan and pray for reaching out this summer.

Sovereign Grace Church (Burnsville, MN)
- Continued favor with the city and financial provision as we build out our new 24/7 Sunday meeting/office space
- Prayer for our upcoming church plant: Redemption Hill Church in Des Moines, IA
- Weekly meeting space. I am meeting with a representative from the Waukee school district on March 23rd to view available space. Please pray for the meeting and for the Lord to bring clarity to where RHC should meet.
- Pray for the people of the Des Moines metro. God has His elect sheep that He will call (John 10:26-27), and Redemption Hill wants to its part to proclaim God's love to them. Ultimately, Redemption Hill Church is being planted to reach a people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Continue to pray for those who are still discerning a potential call to join the church plant core team.
- Pray God will lay it on the heart of people to give financially toward Redemption Hill Church.
